Dr. Georg Feuerstein, the noted German-born Indologist and yoga scholar, died on Saturday, August 25, at age 65.
The news came on Sunday from his wife, Brenda, via an update on the Traditional Yoga Studies Facebook page:
It is with great sadness that I announce that my husband and spiritual partner, Georg Feuerstein, Ph.D., left his body on August 25, 2012 at 9:10 PM.
At this time, I would like to request prayers from the worldwide community for Georg’s transition through the afterlife states and for a swift rebirth.
In lieu of flowers and gifts, Georg had requested a scholarship fund be set up to enable incarcerated people the opportunity to participate in our distance learning courses. More information about the fund will be available this week.

Buddhadharma would like to extend our condolences to Georg’s loved ones and friends.
